Letter: Carbon tax is unnecessary
1:14pm Friday 29th June 2012 in Opinion
Carbon tax is not necessary unless you believe in man-made global warming – a silly theory that is falling further apart by the day (‘Haslingden student takes fuel campaign to Commons’, LT, June 27).
If carbon tax was scrapped, we could all have lower bills. That is a lot better than just giving a few people a discount.
As for poverty, that word has been distorted to fit any of the latest trendy agendas.
Real poverty means the inability to feed and clothe yourself, or access clean water. The new definition of western poverty means to sacrifice a luxury to pay a bill.
I would certainly congratulate her if she campaigned for the right thing. Theft by taxes is not the right thing.
